HUMAN DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
by Alexandra (@xxxTigerxxx), world citizen
My friend @RockAnon sparked the idea of a declaration of independence. Their initial purpose was to create one for the digital realm but i believe we should Aim higher and realize that neither the Analogue nor the digital should be under the reign of divisional and oppressive forces. For this I took the liberty to use the portions of the Original U.S American Declaration of independence that I feel are still relevant and combine it with what I believe we need today. As Always, everything I do is Shareware so Enjoy, and pass it on. It is yours as well as mine because ideas are only alive if they evolve with the people that are exposed to them.
Human Declaration of Independence
When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for the people to dissolve the bands which have connected them to their governing forces to assume their right to live freely and find prosperity – each in their own fashion, it becomes historically relevant to document the reasons and causes which impel them to the separation.
We, who sign this document, hold these truths to be self-evident: that all humans are equal in worth, that by first breath they are endowed certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness – That originally our Governments were instituted to secure these rights, deriving their power from the consent of the governed. Our world governments have strayed far from this initial purpose. Their blatant mismanagement and destructive tendencies have brought us to the realization that it is time for humanity to claim our right to abolish them, and to institute new ways of managing the Worlds resources and ensuring the prosperity of all living creatures.
We are aware that by experience humankind is often more disposed to endure the accustomed boundaries of their oppression than to fight for the freedoms that are rightfully theirs. However, we have reached a point in history where complacency and adherence to the status Quo can be equated with a death sentence for future generations and our planet as a whole. It has therefore not only become our right but our duty to fight for the survival and prosperity of all life against world destroyers; be it our governments and/or the corporations who dictate their policy. Our governments have committed countless crimes in our names, caused unimaginable suffering to feed the agendas of a greedy few.
The history of our Governing systems is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over its populations. In every stage of these Oppressions The brave have Petitioned for Redress, have protested, offered solutions … yet all pursuits have been at best ignored, and in most cases been answered only by repeated injury. Governments who put profit and power over the well being of their people, who see sentient life as nothing but commodities, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, are unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
It is our duty to ensure that every man, woman and child have the full unencumbered right to self-expression and free speech; we have an obligation to be the guardians of our planet, not its rapist and destroyer. As Civilised beings we have a debt toward future generations to ensure a safe prosperous future. We have recognized that this can only be done if we free ourselves from established oppressive social constructs such as religious, racial and class distinctions or the acknowledgement of man-made borders and countries. The human race can only Evolve and survive as one people and one world population! All resources need to be declared combined human heritage, never to be sold or exploited but to be used for the benefit of all; creating a better tomorrow for all future generations, humans and non-humans alike.
We, within our own autonomous personhood, as free humans and Global Citizens, solemnly publish and declare:
1. That all land under our guardianship is to be seen as Independent States of Terra, that they are absolved from all Allegiance to any Government who make force claim to it. As Free and Independent States, they have full Power to perform Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do.
2. We, as individuals, declare ourselves independent from any Government that lays force claim to us. We are to be seen as independent World Citizens. We pledge allegiance to no Country or flag but to a unified prosperous humanity, to the sanctity of life and the prosperity of sentient kind. In good faith and strong belief in the virtue of our decision we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Honour.
